I am conducting three lines of research. The first investigates what enables individuals to transcend the “here-and-now” and see themselves in the future, through another person's eyes, in different societies and cultures, and in hypothetical and novel situations.┬áThe second line of research investigates self-control processes, namely, how individual resolve conflicts between their long-term, global, concerns and their short-term local concerns. The third line of research examines the role of affective states and personal desires in social judgment and decision making.
